@a_5mith That's what I understood more or less. "Forking" is obviously a term introduced in the programming world, and like most of the programming terms, Italian and many other languages lack proper counterparts. Was surprised that Turkish had a word for it "Ayir".
Maybe there's a counterpart not sounding weird, which is "To duplicate", or in Italian "Duplica" (as in "Successfully duplicated topic! Click here to go to the duplicated topic"). Can you confirm this is a good replacement?
